Sheep wool products are very low maintenance. Thanks to its natural lanolin content, wool can clean itself. This process is supported by regular shaking and ventilation in fresh air. The material retains its fluffiness and softness, excess moisture is removed from the wool and mite breeding is reduced. Any natural odours of the wool will also dissipate more quickly with ventilation.
When cleaning wool, use only products designed for wool, such as Lanolin detergent. To spot clean, use a soft damp cloth and Lanolin mixed in a spray bottle with water. You can also hand wash the product in a lukewarm bath at a constant temperature of up to 25°C. Add Lanolin to the water, which not only cleans the wool but also treats it naturally.
Do not wring the washed products, just gently squeeze and leave to dry, ideally in a horizontal position. Never dry wool on a heater, and avoid direct sunlight. Do not use a tumble dryer.
It is not recommended to machine wash sheep's wool products. This can cause the material to deteriorate.
If heavy soiling occurs, wool products can be taken to a professional dry cleaner. The material can only be dry-cleaned in a dry cleaner.
